Webdiscover browser is malware

The fact you even try and install this crap on our systems means we can no longer use your software. You are untrustworthy.

Webdiscover isn't malware else AV prodcuts would flag it as such.

All third-party offers presented during installation are entirely optional, nothing is installed without consent. All offers can easily be declined, declining an offer does not impede the installation of FileZilla.

If you do not wish to use the offer-enabled installed we also provide an installer without offers on the additional download options page.

MalwareBytes flagged it as malware!

Also it acted like malware. It took over my screen and I could not kill it with Process Explorer since it kept reopening itself. So I spent a few hours removing it.

I am quite careful about installing new software and NEVER accept the offer of "bonus" applications, so this malware slipped through surreptitiously.

Malwarebytes also removed your downloaded client exe
I had to uninstall Malwarebytes to install your program
